Visit our Family Recovery Centre in Townsville.

Whether you need a coffee and a chat, access to support and rehabilitation services, or you just want to meet others who understand what you’re going through, you’re welcome at Mates4Mates. 

At our Townsville Family Recovery Centre, located in Aitkenvale, you’ll find a community of like-minded current and ex-serving Defence Force members who have been impacted by service, and their families. Our staff and Mates understand what you’re going through and are here to help – with no judgements or expectations. Once you’ve joined Mates4Mates, you are welcome to come and go as you need for appointments, programs and social connection activities. 

RSL Queensland’s Townsville branch is co-located at the Family Recovery Centre, providing access to RSL Qld Veteran Services’ Officers who can provide advice and assistance with the Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) claims process.  

The Family Recovery Centre is open from 8.30am to 4.30pm, Monday to Friday. Talk with our Family Recovery Centre staff about activities which may occur outside of regular opening hours. 

Veterans can also join our North Queensland Family Recovery Centre Facebook Group to stay up to date with what’s happening each week.
